So even though I hate Walmart for many reasons I had to do my own research by touring the two Superstores we have here. Store #1 was busy , very busy , lots of full carts standing if very long lines to check out with the 3 overworked checkers trying their best to check you out. Probably had 20 checkout stations only a few were operational. On our walk through the store revealed damn few clerks in the entire store.. Their problem not enough help in store.
Store #2 , same problem , no clerks , few checkout people , just a very big store empty of help. They have to hire consulting firms to find this out,, OH ,I forgot they micromanage these stores from home base Arkansas. they don't have a clue what is happening in your local store.
In contrast, go to a local Ace Hardware for instance, lot of clerks, lots of knowledge, lots of checkout personnel.. You choose, bring back the locals..

Dylan blown every relief valve his body has in this long rant, lays out the problem and unlike some does have a very good answer on something the President all by himself can do.. A two trillion dollar infrastructure fund would do the one thing we need to restart our economy and get our people make to work with dignity..
If the Federal Reserve can twinkle their magic keys and create 16 trillion dollars to bail out the crooked banks of the world they they can twinkle some more and create the Infrastructure Fund.
There are lots of ways to pay for this if you must pay for it , they haven't paid for the 16 trillion hell they didn't even tell us about it.. but if you must pay a 1/4% Transaction Tax on all stock market trades will do the trick.. Don't whine just pay you crooked pukes or we will work out some jail time, or maybe a little time in The Tiger's Cage

So the citizens have finally reached this point and have hit the streets. Most politicians and media giants are pretending they don't know why we are mad, they know, and they also know doing something about what's wrong is the end of their careers.. I have news for them, not doing something is a sure way to end their career no matter what side your on.. It may be too late to do much about the Presidential race 2012 but it is not too late to flush a bunch of Representatives . So hot shot important one (in your mind only) get cracking or check your unemployment status , you might be out of work in a little over a year.

The frenzy of MSM was of course led by Fox News but surprisingly all the networks including cable news channels downplayed and attempted to right off as no big deal. As the police violence grew so did the crowds and not only in New York , all over.
The star of stupid Ann Coulter said that the same words heard from the demonstrators could have been heard during the French Revolution ( I am assuming Ann doesn't know what happened to her class of folk during that revolution) does the sound of heads rolling across the floor detached from their bodies ring a bell Ann?? I think the Occupy Wallstreet movement could offer up a few names for a head rolling contest of their own.. See more of Ann's raving here
Some are to organizations directly involved is some form with the current gatherings, others are links to some newsmen who are actually reporting fairly on the happenings... One thing for sure the popular (???) MSM shows have been doing a disservice to what is actually happening. (If they ever get done sucking on the toes of the corporations and politicians they serve) which is doubtful. They don't need our list of demands they know what kind of bullshit they sanctioned, but the current bunch will not fix it..
The Gatherings say they don't want to be a political party as the MSM is suggesting (I think they want them to be so they can classify them as "Tea Party Crazy" which they are not.. Every two years we can flush those who don't listen to the 99% and get a new bunch.. All funding bills start in the house and it won't take long for the Senate to see we won't stand for their Bullshit anymore.
The gang of 12 will be the next big test.. if they screw with SS and Medicare the Gatherings will gain 50 million of us Grey Tigers in the street with them.. and a whole lot of us were around to protest Nam and we won. Same stuff will work today. So shape up or ship out Congressmen..YOU HAVE VERY LITTLE TIME.

His cage was surrounded by a scraggly looking bunch, some looked liked hippies from the 60's, some looked as old as the tiger, and some of the girls had no clothes on.. This of course perked The Tiger right up. They were running sticks up and down his cage making that damn clickty clack noise that had forced The Tiger to look up.. "What the hell are you making all that racket about" he roared.. Well old man tiger you have been asking for years when we would get fed up enough to man the streets, well the time is now.. I have a tv in this cage you know and the MSM has dismissed you guys as just a bunch down here to party and smoke weed. They say you have no demands , your just raising hell.. no leaders, no list of things, no organization, just rabble.. But I sense something different , so tell me , won't you , what are you about.
Well Tiger, you have blogged all the crap wrong with the leadership of the country and you thought we weren't paying attention , well we were. For 30 years we have been taken down the road to ruin by "Trickle Down Economic Theory" that we were led to believe would give us the good life without the drudgery of physical labor. We would be able to trade our manufacturing jobs for nice white collar , sit behind the desk , twinkle computer keys and make a fortune.. Be they Democrat or Republican governments they all sold us the crap that shifting good blue collar jobs offshore would be good for the country and so they started in good ole Ronnie Reagan's rein to give huge tax breaks to the corporations and the rich and at the same time started a huge military buildup creating Trillions of dollars of debt in his 8 years. So it continued till this day deregualtion, tax cuts, unfunded wars and treaties such as NAFTA,GATT,WTO that have destroyed the middle class in America..
Even all that was not enough to get us in the street , because we didn't believe that crazy old coot Ross Perot who warned us of that great sucking sound of jobs leaving the country.. Right about now ole Ross looks like a genius.
Then the smart asses decided to blow the biggest bubble in history. They used housing as the vehicle. They made credit available to anybody who could make an X and made it for those who couldn't . Get the mortgage signed , sell it to a bank, who sold it to a trading house, who bundled it in neat little packages that nobody could understand the worth of (that was their story anyway) and sold this junk throughout the world.. Nobody actually knows the dollar amount of the actual derivatives out there, the real worth is nothing, because they can't prove what is in the package, who owns what , but aided by the law they still take houses.
As the crash began the story changed to it was all our fault , we spent money we didn't actually have (equity in our homes) as the supposed value went up we had more money to spend and some of us did.. As times got tough and wages fell , house prices fell, and all that was left was to use our credit cards to pay the bills.. Their solution to it all was for all of us to go to college, run up 10's of thousands of dollars of debt to get this education only to end up where we are today.. AND ACCORDING TO THEM IT'S ALL OUR FAULT.
Well, BULLSHIT , all that education did do some good after all. We finally stopped and took inventory of where they have put us, we are smart enough to know who to blame, who to punish, and how to fix it all.. We do know, and all those of you who are guilty , know we know. That's why the MSM they own is downplaying the beginning of something big.. they are AFRAID, VERY AFRAID.
Well HOT DAMN, exclaimed the Tiger, I guess it's time for me to get back in shape.. I think you have hit on the key to fixing this mess. You might want to consider something I've been pushing for awhile and it would seem to fit right in with the way your going about this. As the movement grows and the urge strikes some of us to just NOT GO TO WORK, SIT ON YOUR FRONT LAWN (PORCH OR CITY PARK) , RAISE YOUR RIGHT ARM , THEN HOIST YOUR MIDDLE FINGER , AND JUST SIT THERE AND WAIT.. It won't take long to get a response.. when their toilets won't flush, or their Mercedes won't start, or their favorite restaurant is closed, their liquor store shelves are empty , they will come ask what it will take to get you back to work. By that time you may have a team gathered to point them to who will tell them what it would take. How , or who you will choose , you will decide. I would consider folks like Elizabeth Warren, Dennis Kucinich, Bernie Sanders for starters..
Well you folks have woke the Tiger up.. and no doubt you will hear more from me in the future..
PS Catch Keith Olberman's show on Current Tv he has been given the movement great coverage.

American manufacturers are totally bonkers. While VW has in production an 8.5 horsepower car that gets 273 miles per gallon Detroit is messing around with a 800 horsepower Mustang.. the VW will sell for $600 . With gasoline topping 4 bucks which one are you interested in?
My problem with this is the wasted engineering time and talent building cars a few hundred of us can buy.. They could be working on stuff like the VW which we are all going to need and from the looks of things damn soon..

I wrote a piece on the Smirking Chimp last July on the Fracking Process but the radioactive part of the story went unnoticed . Well now it's making the NY Times.. If I was still on the East Coast I would be big time worried..

They stay because of the benefits, yep , the very ones they are trying to strip along with their contracts.. If they take all that there will be a mass exodus from teaching and that might be just what the right wing wants, the destruction of unions and public education... Back the protesters in any way you can..

PS. I intend to use this blog more often as it allows me to post charts instead of a link to them.. A lot of readers never click through to see what the blog is talking about...
